I just want to update people on the status of Eclipse’s IRC outreach. For the first time lately, I’ve seen over 100 (!) people in #eclipse which is much better than the 7 or so people that used idle in there (that just happened to be the committers that idled in #eclipse-dev too) a few months ago. I encourage people that have spare cycles to burn to idle in #eclipse and help out people (show that Eclipse is a friendly community). Thanks to all who currently help out (thanks Paul Webster and Nitin)
If you need help getting on IRC, I’d check out the Wiki page.
